Thucydides [writes]: "but he, whether [because of] the cry or whether something else had suddenly occurred to him, led the army back."[1] That is, an exclamation.
Also [sc. attested is the related participle] e)pibow/menos ["calling [upon]"], meaning inviting/invoking.[2]
Greek Original:
Epiboêma: Thoukudidês: ho de eite to epiboêma eite kai auto allo ti ê kata to auto doxan exaiphnês, to strateuma apêge. toutestin epiphônêma. kai Epiboômenos, anti tou epikaloumenos.
Notes:
[1] An approximation of Thucydides 5.65.3 (web address 1): King Agis of Sparta is warned by an old Spartan soldier not to take unnecessary risks in the prelude to the Battle of Mantineia.
[2] Evidently quoted from somewhere -- perhaps again Thucydides: 6.16.6. (Hesychius epsilon4654 has a parallel entry for e)pibow=ntai, perhaps extracted from Thucydides 7.69.2.) For the verb cf. epsilon 2245, epsilon 2246, epsilon 2247, epsilon 2248, epsilon 2249.
